"My Lullaby" as written by Maria Viktoria Mena and Arvid Wam Solvang....
Mom, please tell me what to do,
I'm so disappointed in you
You said those words that made me cry,
And you always wondered why
Why I sing my lullaby

Mom, please hurry home to me,
I waited up so patiently
You sit down and you start to cry,
But you never ask me why
Why I sing my lullaby
Why I sing my lullaby

Was it my fault they lead you in the wrong direction?
Was it my fault they didn't show you any affection?
I show you when I start to cry
Still you always wonder why
Why I sing my lullaby

Mom, why love me if you're cold
You'll just get bitter then grow old
Ask me when I start to weep
Then I'll tell you in my sleep
Why I sing my lullaby
Why I sing my lullaby
Why I sing my lullaby
Why I sing my lullaby
Why I sing my lullaby
Why I sing my lullaby

    General CommentIt's about relationships where the one you look up to is always attention-hungry ((and doesn't realize it)) because they didn't get it when they needed it. So now when the singer needs this person, they always ask why things are such a big deal and push them aside; never truly listen to them.

    General CommentMaria's mother and her father divorced when Maria was young, and Maria developed depression and an eating disorder. This song is about that.

    General Commentthis song reminds me of me and my mom too! this song is just exactly how i feel. my parents got divorced and i had an eating disorder, and i'm still depressed. my mom has a boyfriend and she's always out with him. the part in the song that says "mom, please hurry home to me, i waited up so patiently." it reminds me so much of my mom. she's always gone with her boyfriend and i'm up at home waiting to see when she gets up. and she always cries about everything, but never asks me about why i'm upset.
